I can still hear the C-A-R-D-S chant drowning out the C-A-T-S chant over the pouring rain at The County. Well, I can’t talk smack now because my Cardinals didn’t show up on Saturday.
The rain? Who cares? These true HIMs embraced every bit of it while undergoing a gauntlet WO!
PAX (7 total) – Pelican, Dauber, Jewel, Fear Factor, Jolly Rancher, Meter Maid, Backflop Q
We took a mosey to the overhang across from the playground for a little Warm up (and to stay a little dry).
COR – 30 SSH IC, 15 Grass Grabbers IC, 15 Toy Soldiers IC, 15 Mountain Climbers IC, 15 Merkins IC, Downward Dog w/ running stretches, Michael Phelps, Kindra Newman’s, and Quad stretches to complete the warm up.
Thang #1 –
I tried my best attempt at several rounds of 11’s. The PAX ran a 1/4 mile loop around the church in between sets of 11’s. We made it through all 5 sets. Each completed set was followed by a chant from the PAX’s favorite football team.
1st set – Merkins & Plank Jacks (2 count)
2nd set – Jump lunges (2 count) & Squats
3rd set – Pickle Pounders (single count) & Burpees
4th set – Big Boys & SSH hops (4 count)
5th set – Mountain Climbers (2 count) & Flutter kicks (single count)
Ended with COR, NOR & COT
COT – I brought my LED lamps to the County once again (go figure). The lights serve as a reminder that us HIMs should be the shining light for everyone we encounter throughout the day. Put a smile on someone’s face, go the extra mile, do something for your M that makes her feel special, donate to a charity, volunteer somewhere, grab an angel off the angel tree, go out of your way to hold the door for someone, just do something.
It doesn’t have to be big, just be the light. Pass it on…it’s contagious.
Ended with an Our Father.
Till next time…Backflop out!
